Is Vitamin E a preservative?

preservative vitamin

No, vitamin E is an antioxidant, meaning that it will remove free radicals from your blend whether it is a lotion, soap, or oil. Vitamin E is wonderful for adding life to oils and preventing them from going rancid, but it is not a preservative in the sense of bacterial inhibition. Bacteria can still grow in your products if Vitamin E and water are both present.
